I tried that link, Adriana, but I got a page that doesn't let me navigate anywhere else.

I've got one good close-up picture of a mounted goat. Don't wanna post it on accounta I don't know that its owner (the dead goat's owner) has the goat back from the taxidermist nor if he wants it on a public site.

I'm bumpin' this up here on accounta Jeremy is accusin' me of never tellin' him I received the grinder when he finally sent it. Just wanna prove he was right.

I got it Jeremy. And it's already been sent out to Roger (Tile Art).


And I wanted to tell Ms. Adriana to check her PM box and her email box on accounta I keep tryin' to answer her about goat pichers but she don't pay me no nevermind. Might as well be my wife, eh?

well I feel bad cause I only gave that lil' fella about 2 days worth of work, hard work though, we made some nice score lines (blade deep) on some foundaiton wells we were cutting, and let the cutoff saw do the rest, Performed well. Other day was tile work and I gotta say the variable is nice.

the rest of the time I had it, he sat in a box Good couple hard days I gave it though and it performed well. sure is a good tool that variable speed.

Rodger, give it hell.

Adriana, of course, you bowdarkskull.

Roger's the guy what got his name inna had just before yours, Jeff. He gets tard of it and I'll send it out your way.


The variable speed makes all the difference, Jeremy, I agree. That was the first of those I ever tried and I now have two of my own. Hardly use the high-speed ones I have any more. Only if one has the right blade on it and I really don't need the slower speed, but most times I'm even willing to change blades on one of the variable speed tools instead. I like'em.

I bet it's the one that he sent to me. I used it a couple days, sent it back and bought my own. I'm still putting the miles on it. You saying it's still running, Kelly?

Far as I know it's still runnin', Davy. I'm tryin' to track it down so's to find out, eh?

Young Jeffy (Silvercitytile) is still wantin' a try at it, I do believe.

Dan, if you're interested in knowing about the grinder you might start at page one of this thread. It's all in there.

Damn, he remembered. It is still running - strong.

Guess I gotta go buy my own now that you have me hooked. Excellent tool!

PM me your address to git it back to you and I'll get it sent out in the next couple of days.




Who's Jeff?
